Based on feedback from our X-Lite end users, CounterPath has decided to reinstate the X-Lite 4 feature set, including features such as SIP-based Instant Messaging and Presence.
We have also listened to users who requested that we decouple X-Lite from our SoftPhone.com community, which we have now done. We are therefore pleased to announce the availability of X-Lite 4.5, which also includes capabilities such as SIP URL dialing and an updated User Interface (UI) based on CounterPath’s award winning Bria desktop client.
CounterPath is continuing to offer X-Lite as a free SIP VoIP client, alongside our fully featured SIP VoIP softphone Bria. While X-Lite supports core features such as VoIP, Video, SIP IM/Presence and Contacts, it does not support advanced Bria features such as XMPP based IM/Presence, IM group chat, Outlook integration, call recording and network-based directories.

We hope that you are as excited about our new X-Lite 4.5 release as we are. Thank you once again for your feedback, and please continue to let us know how we are doing.
As for the SoftPhone.com service, stay tuned… exciting changes are coming.
